Virus removal NYC, Malware removal  Manhattan, Adware Removal Brooklyn

In the early age of computers viruses would try to display a message on your screen, delete your files and break the operating system. Now most viruses are trying to make money off of you. They do this with

There are many types of computer viruses:

Boot sector virus – Infects your hard drive and works in the background.

Browser Hijacker –

Polymorphic Virus – Evades antivirus utilities by changing its own program to prevent detection.

Resident Virus – Loads a side virus that restores the main virus when deleted

Rootkit Virus – Invisible virus that hides and runs in the background

Trojan Virus – Gets installed when loading a program or utility you want

Terms & Regulations

Scheduling
Our schedule changes daily, depending on other clients, traffic conditions and public transportation. You should allow us a one hour margin from your appointed time. If we schedule for 5:00pm, we might arrive as late as 6:00pm, but we always try our best to be punctual

Time = Money
When your technician comes over, please remember that time is money. Although we work very fast, we are not psychic and can never be 100% sure how much time a certain task could take. The charge is by an hourly rate, even if it takes 4 hours to do something you thought would take only 2 hours.

One Hour Minimum
The first charge is always for arriving/traveling and the first hour of work. Even if your problem is fixed after 9 minutes, you will still have to pay for the entire hour. After the first hour, charges will be made for parts of an hour (for example, 2 hours and 10 minutes).

Payment
We accept cash or checks (with a preference for cash). If you are a business, we can invoice you, and set up a time to be paid. For remote/online service, we accept payment through PayPal.com or Google Checkout.

Coverage Area
Since this is New York, most of our traveling takes place on public transportation, which means that if you live too far from the city, there will be an extra charge for the first hour (the hour that includes the traveling fee).

LG puts a massive battery in the X Power2, but not much else

LG will be showing its new G6 flagship phone at Mobile World Congress next week, but that’s not the only handset the company is bringing to Barcelona. Joining it will be an update to the X Power, the X Power 2. Like its predecessor, the second-gen X Power’s X-factor is battery life. Part of a new line of affordable phones that “incorporates different exclusive features that are usually found only in premium smartphones,” the LG X Power 2 features a massive 4,500mAh battery that will easily get users through a full day of heavy use. LG estimates that the phone “can play back videos continuously for approximately 15 hours, provide navigational directions for about 14 hours or surf the web for around 18 hours.” And if that’s still not enough juice, it features high-speed charging that can provide 50 percent battery life after being plugged in for an hour.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Apple: Transgender bathrooms instead of new Macs?

One of the things I liked best about Steve Jobs was that he more or less kept Apple out of partisan politics. Oh sure, everybody knew that Jobs himself was a liberal in terms of politics, but he never used Apple as a platform to push a partisan political agenda. Steve Jobs knew quite well that people with all different kinds of politics were Apple customers, so he steered the company away from getting directly involved in politics. This had the beneficial effect of preventing people from resenting Apple on the basis of partisan politics. Tim Cook, on the other hand, seems completely unable to follow in Jobs’ footsteps when it comes to using Apple as a political platform. Cook has gone full SJW [social justice warrior] and seems unable to keep his politics to himself while acting in the role of Apple’s CEO.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

4 things we expect from Mobile World Congress 2017

Mobile World Congress, the Davos of wireless technology, is happening next week in Barcelona, and it’s going to be a particularly important year, as the mobile landscape readies itself for a couple of fairly major shifts. Here’s our quick look ahead to next week in sunny Spain and the four main points we expect from the MWC show.5G, or at least previews of it There’s been a big school of 5G press releases floating into our inboxes here in tech media just ahead of MWC (i.e., “Verizon plans 5G wireless trial service in 11 cities this year”), and it’s no real surprise – next-generation mobile networks are going to do a lot more than just boost speeds. They’ll also connect large numbers of devices – not just phones and tablets and laptops – to each other.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
